Today I drove from Packwood, WA to Klamath Falls, OR which will be our base for visiting Crater Lake National Park. The drive was 422 miles and we didn’t make too many stops. At a rest area along Interstate 5, there was a pumpkin field that begged for its picture to be taken.

We took the Willamette Highway (Oregon Route 58) to go to Klamath Falls. At an elevation of 5,000 ft on that highway we passed by Diamond Peak, an ancient volcano covered with snow. With a height of 8,743 ft, it is quite an impressive sight.
